Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our college football selections on the Monday night game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then that I shall deviate to dip our toes into uncharted waters.
It will most likely be the very first and only time this year we do this, as the last week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season sport of NCAA soccer comprising one of the very best clubs in the country, and a legendary soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the best of me last week with a bet on the Steelers while the Titans were endorsed by me. We have been placing wins back and on so it appears like its my turn for the golden wreath, as the Irish are heartily endorsed by me and will accompany the squares laying the lumber on a public road favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days prior to this Monday night affair, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point about the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its currently offered in a solid -20 across the board whatsoever the best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I love the Irish but you are currently leaning on the Cardinals. Besides the venue, why is it that you think Louisville could hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup , Swinger, at least and a convincing win IMO, said a lot about the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us move to soccer, where the games rely and will our recordings with this one.
Remember those Thursday night games Louisville utilized to play against big-name opponents? They held their own and engineered several upsets. These were fun games to see and the Cardinals were an club.
However, just including the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out win matches and to change the civilization and worked wonders. This will not happen right away as the ability level is down from theVille. This is a time for Louisville, a group that has the chance.
I have read where the Cards trainers have sped up the sluggish mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good title for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall as the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 the shield which makes me more nervous. You have your Irish up please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing as the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy inside their nest, flying in this match. Scott Satterfield is now in the big leagues and he has a team coming off of a dismal record last year where they went winless. This rebuild is comparable to attempting to turn it in an F-22 Raptor and carrying a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a team which made it to the CFP this past year and possessed only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points within the normal year and going a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders also, averaging 33 points per game over.
My query is, just how can be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to release, supposed to gain some traction against a swarming shield? Particularly when he is working with an entirely new offensive strategy and a new coach?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville will have the ability to keep up and Im desperate to your sage wisdom and handicapping expertise that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to see in your last sentence you are coming around to the bright side of sport gambling, or you are simply being the identical shrewd a** you usually are. Ill let the SBR readers that are currently making school football selections decide on that. I am the first to understand Louisville was, however, 1-11 ATS and fully pumped last season.
Like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons However, that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A trainer brings a new mindset and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on creating a statement this being a match. Louisville does need to trust not and the Irish will take them for granted have a lot of fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly using gold and the blue is ATS as a road favorite, also when dishing out 20 or more digits, a ATS. This defense you mentioned might improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, even if you dont/can not recruit like Clemson or Bama, it will take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping that was impressive restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, because Louisville might be better but I would submit that they are coached by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable album made by an equally incompetent trainer like Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that placing nearly three touchdowns on the street is square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but on occasion the public is correct, and also in this case they certainly are. Until next week when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come prepared to rumble in Louisville.
